Rex International Holding announced that its subsidiary Carribean Rex completed the drilling of three wells in Trinidad & Tobago. Off the three, two are deemed to be commercial with substantial net pay sands. The company was able to lower drilling costs by 40 percent below budget, costing less than US$1 million per well. In a separate filing, Rex announced it made a NOK13.7 million subscription of Fram Exploration shares, increasing its stake from 22.3 percent to 30.3 percent after completion.
